LeRoi Moore has died

Sax player LeRoi Moore from The Dave Mattthews Band has died unexpectedly from complications of an ATV accident back in June. He was 46.

Moore suffered serious injuries in an an ATV accident on June 30 outside the band's home base of Charlottesville, Virginia, including a punctured lung and broken ribs. Moore returned to the hospital last month due to complications.

The band posted the following statement on its Web site Tuesday night: "We are deeply saddened that LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, August 19, 2008, at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles from sudden complications stemming from his June ATV accident on his farm near Charlottesville, Virginia. LeRoi had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program."

This is a sad day, I'm a huge Dave Matthews fan who has seen them perform several times and each time was a sensational experience for me. LeRoi will be missed.

...In memory of a great musician.
